Assuming that the calorimeter is a perfect insulator, what is the specific heat of the metal? [Special heat of H2O is 4.128 J/(g·∘C).]

some help would be appreciated!

(mass metal x specific heat metal x delta T) + (mass water x specific heat water x delta T) = 0

The only unknown is specific heat metal.
